The neck, also known as the cervical spine, starts at the base of the skull and is made up of seven small vertebrae. While these vertebrae are small, they have a very important job. The cervical spine is not only responsible for holding the full weight of your head, but it is also what allows you to move your head in almost every direction. However, that flexibility of the neck is also what makes your neck more vulnerable to potential injury and pain.
Common Symptoms Of Neck Pain
You may not realize it until you experience it, but neck pain can be a big nuisance in your life. This kind of pain can be caused by improper biomechanics, like poor posture standing and sitting at a desk, auto accidents, falls, aging or even just everyday wear and tear. Symptoms you may experience with neck pain, are:
- Stiff neck
- Sharp pain
- General soreness
- Radiating pain down the shoulders and arms
- Trouble gripping or lifting objects
- Tingling, numbness or weakness
Discover Natural Relief From Neck Pain
Here at Monmouth Back and Neck Rehabilitation in Manalapan, New Jersey, we are able to help you find relief from your neck pain through precise adjustments using gentle force to the joints of the neck. This type of neck manipulation will slowly begin to improve your range of motion and increase the mobility of your spine.
It is not uncommon for our patients to slowly begin to notice they are able to turn and tilt their head more than they were able to before the adjustment. Those patients will also notice a reduction in their pain, overall soreness, and stiffness.
